To celebrate The Great Oreo Cookie Quest, we were asked by Oreo and BritMums to create our own cookie quest and have some wonder filled family fun.
The best thing about this time of year is wrapping up and feeling cosy.
Scarves, hats, jumpers, snoods, mittens and gloves. We have different hats for dog walks, then nice days out attire and even cosy night in comforts and accessories. All the things to warm us up for those chilly months.
So here are our top picks for the winter months.
In love with this ASOS scarf and now only £8 from £18. Perfect with heavy knit cardigan and jeans.
These gloves add a something special to your get up. May not be that practical on a dog walk, for for a stroll around London or coffee with the girls, these fit the bill. £17.99 from Zara.
At the pricier end of the scale, but still discounted is this gorgeous Karl Donoghue hat. Perfect for the slopes in the new year. A massive 46% off from £171 to £92 on the Outnet.com.
This jumper ticks all the boxes. Dressed up with a leather skirt, down with jeans and smart enough for work. New Look, £27.99.
For those cosy nights in, you can’t beat a pair of slippers. Us Latte mummies love our slippers. Top of our list have got to be these comfy Wooly pair of Ugg slippers and although seem expensive at £80 are well worth the pennies.
With your comfortable slippers on what else would make this cosy night in even more…well…COSY? The flickering light of a beautifully wintery scented candle.
Jo Malone have some of our favorite scents, but these days a little trip to Aldi gets you something just as good for half the price. But being that its Christmas we deserve a little Jo Malone.
Finally to complete our Winter Warmer favourites is the must have oversized knitwear, to curl up in on a cold day. & Other Stories is currently one of our top favourite shops at the moment and this Alpacca Blend Jumper is definitely on the wish list, unfortunately after christmas chaos the credit card won’t allow any more transactions (sigh) so we will just have to wait till pay day.
The Only Way Is Latte
If it’s to drink less or lose weight, run a marathon or start a hobby; this is the time we start to think about what we want from next year. Some people make plans, hopes and dreams, some people don’t make any at all. Some people make them just to break them. What’s our New Year resolutions?

The day the teen found out about Father Christmas.
As a firm believer in magic, fairies and all things my husband shakes his head at; I remember it so clearly. Continue reading “Don’t stop believing”
“Your dress should be tight enough to show you’re a woman and loose enough to show you’re a lady”
Tis the season to wear dresses. With Christmas Parties galore and the time-consuming battle of looking for that perfect outfit, we have compiled a little list of our favourite Party dresses from the high street and online to give you some inspiration on how to WOW your work colleagues and friends. Continue reading “Life is a party…dress like it!”
We recently read an article in Grazia titled ‘Can we please stop telling women how to give birth’. We were instantly intrigued. It was written by Maria Lally who talks about the why it took so long for The Royal College of Midwives to end its ‘natural Birth’ campaign and how the pressure of having a ‘natural birth’ has effected not only her but so many women in the UK. This article touched a nerve with both of us as our labours were not what is considered ‘natural births’, but what is a natural birth? Continue reading “Hugs before drugs”
All I want for Christmas is you…or a Mulberry Bayswater.
If you know me and Charlotte you would know we love McDonalds, Charlotte especially is their number one fan. With growing boys and husbands who all love to eat, between us we could probably start owning shares. Everyone needs a McDonalds in their life, if it’s just to feed the family on a lazy day, devour a Big Mac on a hangover, or like me have a craving for Chicken nuggets when pregnant; it really has something for everyone. So when we were asked if we would like to come along to McDonalds in Reading to hear all about their latest features and changes, how could we refuse? Although would going behind the scenes potentially put us off ever going again?….nah! To also be told we would be able to make our very own Big Mac, well this was life goals ticked off the bucket list.
Hi My name is Kim and I have expensive taste… there I said it! I have always believed that if something costs more, then its better. Then I had kids and my bank balance was no loner the same. These days if I want something and I don’t want to spend the money myself it goes on my Christmas or birthday list (yes I may be 33 but your never too old for a letter to Santa). Anyway without going completely off topic; being someone who loves all things beauty; I have since been introduced to some bargain beauty buys. I with the help of some bargain hunter friends have compiled a list of our top Bargain buys all within easy reach and without breaking the bank balance.
We recently were invited to attend a swimming class at Leatherhead leisure centre ran by Fusion Swim School who are apart of Fusion Lifestyle. Fusion Lifestyle are a highly experienced sports and leisure management organisation which works with local councils, schools and colleges; which means local facilities and reasonable prices. All the instructors are fully competent and qualified.
Out of both us Latte Mummies Charlotte is the fashionista, don’t get me wrong I love to shop, but I find shopping for clothes so stressful. My body is forever changing depending if that week I have decided to eat a burger or not, and so for me my daily attire mainly consists gym clothes or comfort clothes, so when I shop I shop for makeup, skin care hair care, mainly anything that can keep me looking and feeling 20 years younger (wishful thinking).
